It’s not about what the mirror shows you. It’s about tying your shoes.
It took five months for the “mirror” to start showing the person hidden inside. For five months I woke up at the crack of dawn and tied my shoes.
As we head into the cold months – the season when depression, sickness, and unhealthy habits kick in full force –> we are all in danger or fighting the war within.
Fifteen months ago, I walked into a gym wearing a pajama shirt and shorts that hardly fit. I thought to myself “some people can’t walk across the room- I can lift five pound weights and throw them over my head- it’s a start.”
For me, waking up meant: get to moving. For you, it may simply be—> Get up. Tie your shoes. And sit on the sofa. Simply getting out of bed. Next week, try walking. The week after, move your body in a way that makes you become stronger.
Never stop getting stronger.
Maybe you’re a workout freak- that’s not the problem. Maybe you need to get up. Tie your shoes. And sit reading the word- soaking up good medicine to conquer your day.
That’s my season.
I want to encourage you to wake up. Tie your shoes and kick the day in it’s face.
The mirror doesn’t always reflect – but your soul does.
